All Quiet on the Blog Front (again)
August 7, 2014
For those of you who might stop by semi-regularly, you’ve not seen me post in about 4 months. In fact, I’ve not regularly posted since January of this year and John has been carrying the weight. Work has “kept me out of trouble” as they say, or more correctly just been insanely busy. When I’m crazy busy at work I don’t have said time/energy to blog… which is quite unfortunate because that is the time when I have the best things to write about.
GFI Vipre Enterprise for Mac – Run away logs
August 16, 2013
Yesterday at the office we discovered that GFI Vipre for Mac has a “small” run away logging problem. The antivirus logs to /private/var/log/vipred_stdout.log and /private/var/log/vipred_stderr.log — The latter of which being the problem file. stderr on numerous machines was in excess of several gigabytes in size. While we never bothered to correctly address the issue, Alex “fixed” it by putting a script into JAMF Casper Suite to rm the file.
